3. What figure of speech does Wordsworth use in line 7?
The correct answer is A. Line 7 is among the most famous paradoxes in literature. A paradox presents a seemingly contradictory idea, but turns out to be true upon closer analysis. “The child is father of the man” connotes that much wisdom can be learned from the innocence of the young; thus, the persona wishes to keep that youthful innocence that connects the child to nature. Wordsworth himself reiterates this in Ode: Intimations of Immortality and in Tintern Abbey.
